We encountered this problem elsewhere and found out that the latest
version of the firmware from Linksys (only works on the WRT54G v8
routers btw; might also work for the WAP54G as well) resolves the WDS
(Please paste the above link on your browser; clicking on the above link
somehow didn't work for me).
In the firmware version 8.00.5, it specifically mentions:
"Resolves issue with using a WAP54G in repeater mode."
This looks to be a fairly recent version of the firmware.
